‘Gaming The System’: How The GOP Came To Back Trump | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC


Many top Republicans cynically downplayed Trump’s threats even though they themselves once warned of his danger and support of violence. MSNBC’s Ari Melber documents this behavior in a special report, citing an important new article from historian Timothy Snyder outlining how elected Republicans made a bargain with Trump by drawing on historical lessons about autocrats and propaganda. Snyder himself joins Melber to discuss his analysis, Snyder asserting the GOP is “based on the idea of gaming the system.”(This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ).

‘Gaming The System’: How The GOP Came To Back Trump | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC


    1. how many hours before we can not have to deal with the joke of 74 million stupid fellow countrymen who support him?

  1. I now believe that there is no fixing the stupid, if you believe anything with no evidence, there is no hope.

  2. Looking back at Trump’s face, Nov. 26, 2020, saying…”This election was a fraud”…see the evil face of the king of lies.


  3. the thing is that these is not over people are already poison and dont want to learn how a dictatorship start.

    1. @Michael Jenkins Are you sure? Rudy held up his phone when he said that and we all know that Rudy is not that good with phones. He butt dials and leaves messages for the wrong people. Not an electronics whiz kid, poor Rudy.

  4. I’m in Austin, where those Trump Trucks ran the Harris bus off the road on the way into our town. Everyone here was very shook up by it. As soon as I saw how the GOP reacted to it? I knew something like this would happen. I’m so angry.

    1. for me, it was the moment he used Secret Service to assault the media for his bible photo op. I knew something big was comming.

    2. It appears that they have all been trial runs in one way or another. Here’s to hoping they don’t succeed.

  5. Read ‘On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century.’ By Timothy Synder. It’s a concise read but very thorough.

  6. These people that don’t GET IT, simply find it easier to hook their noses to the brown creases of their god and not critically think.

    1. Trump lovers and religion fanatics have a lot in common. They don’t care what the truth is. They believe what they want, and they don’t ask for evidence.

  7. Trump pays for nothing
    We can only hope and pray he pays for his crimes
    That his people and followers and family pay for their crimes
    It will be a first for many
    But I’m sure they have been doing and acting like this for their entire lives

  8. You can’t make logical sense out of people’s actions whose goals are only about “power”

  9. Trump could not prove in court 60+ suits any rigged election. If Trump and his minions are not charged next time more ppl will die believing a Lie!
